I had just stepped out for 30 mins and hence left my bag in the car. Never doing tht again ever in Bangalore”.

@_NoneType comments” Been there, felt that. Got my Beats headphones snatched by a couple of guys on an unregistered scooter 3 years ago. Since then, I even hold my phone tightly while using it in public because of the fear of getting snatched”. @SarbjeetMicky states “It’s an everyday story, it happened to me. My iPhone 12 Pro Max got snatched infront of an IT park at Bommanhalli at 10:30 p.m. I went to the constable who was at the signal, and instead of taking action, he replied, “Why are you using the phone on the streets? I lost there.”
